Welcome to Maryland 4-H Youth Development!
Greetings from the State Program Leader!
I bring greetings on behalf of Maryland 4-H! Welcome to the Maryland 4-H website. Here, you will find information about our state 4-H center, how to connect with your local 4-H program, major program areas hosted throughout the state, and additional opportunities for youth and volunteers. 4-H is the largest youth development program in the nation with just over 6 million youth participating annually – over 51,000 of them are right here in Maryland. Here in Maryland, we are committed to growing an inclusive program where youth have opportunities to engage in STEM, Civic Engagement, Healthy Living and Agriculture through clubs, afterschool, camps, and more! Want to learn more?
Check out the section 'Get Involved' to learn about a program near you.
If you are a Maryland 4-H alumni, you can join our alumni group or support us on the Maryland 4-H Foundation page.
